12 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with an inch and a half tan head after a strong pour. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like roasted malt, oats, coffee, and chocolate. I think the taste is just like the aroma, except that that there's a bit of dark fruitiness noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's creamy and has a good amount of carbonation. I think it's a good Oatmeal Stout, definitely worth trying.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.

A: Opaque black body with a khaki colored head. Decent head retention as wells as medium lacing.

S: Not a very complex nose mostly roasted malt and milk sweetness can smell some faint oats.

T: Some rasted flavors as well as some chocolate flavors. hides the alcohol well, but theres to much of a bite for this to be a decent example of the style.

M: Mouthfeel is okay, theres a bit more carbonation, and the body is a bit to watery.

O: Its not an awful stout, but comparatively there are just many more complex and more enjoyable examples of the style at similar price points. Pick up if you are new to the style, if you aren't, this will be a disappointment to you.

Had this on cask at the local pub. It was the 2nd day of the cask, had a nice head to it the aroma was slight caramel and oats. The oatmeal taste was fantastic. Cask is the best way to enjoy this stout, it really brings out the taste. Had this on bottle once and thought it was just a middle of the road beer. Cask makes all the difference.

A- a near-impenetrable black with a short-lived light tan head. A hint of carbonation is visible in the center of the beer as seen from above the glass

S-a slight hint of roasted malt and maltose sweetness.

T- a big astringent bite hits right off the bat and mellows into some malty sweetness on the finish. A fairly harsh intro and transition. Gets a little better as it warms (initial serving temp. ~50F)

M- no complaints here. Lighter and smoother on the palate as befits the style.

O- the taste really hits hard. Everything else about this beer is good to great, but that big blast of odd bitterness is really hard on the first few sips.

A great oatmeal stout. Great body and flavor although it could have been more full. Smell is slightly lacking but may just be from bottle. Would love to try this on draft somewhere or in a growler. Would recommend for most Oatmeal Stout lovers. I would say this is a must try.
